in Transportation

In a statement dated May 19, Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) announced it would launch a new expanded service schedule, including five trips added to the weekday schedule and the resumption of Saturday weekend service, alongside a significant reduction in the price of fares to kick off its Welcome Back campaign.

“With the North Bay opening back up as COVID-19 restrictions ease, SMART held numerous listening sessions and conducted two surveys to reassess the public’s travel needs and interest in weekend service,” said the statement.
